The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), which operates the Tri-Rail commuter rail service in Miami and along the 72-mile South Florida Rail Corridor, will receive $71.7 million to replace 24 rail vehicles (32% of its fleet). The funding will support new locomotives and passenger cars to replace older vehicles that have exceeded or are near the end of their useful life. This project will ensure safe, reliable, and efficient transportation for Tri-Rail’s 12,500 daily riders.
